the answer seems pretty clear to me - it is yes you can win with 0 distro - the better ? is "Is zero distro ever the best option for gameplanning?"
My opinion is no, zero distro is never the best option, but with some teams, the amount it harms your teams is small, with other teams, playing zero distro has very negative consequences. But, even very negative, is only something like 2 to 5 points lost, so it may not be immediately obvious that it is harmful. By the way, the same sorts of loss occur when you play an offense you don't know, you will find it does not cause your 65 ppg team to score only 30 ppg, more like 60 ppg.
